80 Firebird MC rod mod?

When installing a 1980 Firebird master cylinder, do I need to do anything to the stock Sammy pushrod (called actuator rod?)(lengthen or shorten it) ?

According to a friend of mine that I recommended the swap to:

You have to clearance the mounting holes and redo the lines to the MC. The lines were an unexpected PITA since he was anticipating a "drop in".

That's the advantage of the Firebird MC vs. the ranger and others, you don't have to adjust the actuator rod.

Thanks for the info guys. Just wondering, does it matter if I get normal MC (front discs w/rear drums) or the 4 wheel disc MC?

Re: 80 Firebird MC rod mod?

I have never herd of doing this before. Why I guess is my first question. I was thinking of going to disks in the rear and wondering if my stock mc would need to be changed if I did. Is this why, because it is bigger/better? Is there any good info/writeups out there for this swap?
